Matt Miles - 17 July 2013

Latitude Festival takes place at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk from Thursday 18th July to Sunday 21st. Things are looking bright this year as the festival is forecast to be both a hot and sunny affair.

Thursday and Friday are both forecast to be cloudless and hot. High temperatures are forecast, reaching 23°C in the day, and dropping to a balmy 16°C at night. Craig Charles and Mary Anne Hobbs opening party on Thursday and Bloc Party’s Obelisk Stage show on Friday night will be accompanied by perfect summer weather.

Saturday will see Kraftwerk’s experimental and highly hyped 3-D extravaganza possibly plagued by cloud cover. According to the Met Office forecast the temperature will peak at 18°C and the sun will hardly be seen all day. It will hopefully be a case of the darker, the better for the unique concert.

Sunday is going to heat things up again. The clouds should clear by early afternoon, allowing the sun to shine through and heat things up to highs of 22°C. Someone had better put a water bowl out for Foals and Grizzly Bear before their slots on the main stage Sunday evening. 

Lovebox Weekender takes place at Victoria Park in Central London from Friday 19th July to Sunday 21st. Narrowly escaping a heat wave warning, attendees are encouraged to hydrate and definitely pack sunblock. 

Friday will be the sunniest of the three day weekender, not a cloud in sight for the entire day and the temperatures soar as high as 25°C. Let’s see if fiery headliner Azealia Banks can take the heat, or will she try to start some twitter beef with the sun.

Saturday will see the sun attempting to hide behind clouds, but for the most part will be just as sunny as Friday. High temperatures reaching 23°C in the daytime but should drop to a slightly cooler 18°C by the time Plan B takes to the stage.

Sunday lives up to its name for Lovebox Weekender 2013, much to the delight of any Goldfrapp fans planning a pimms picnic in the park. Cloud cover forecast throughout the morning but from midday the sun will make itself known by heating things all the way up to 25°C

Tramlines Festival takes place from the 19th to the 21st July across four outdoor stages and virtually all of Sheffield's venues, bars and pubs.

Starting off in near heat wave conditions the weekend will cool down quickly. Friday sees temperatures peaking at 26°C with little cloud cover, meaing this would definitely be the best day to visit all the outdoor stages. Saturday cools off with temperatures only reaching 21°C thanks to almost constant cloud cover. Sunday stays much the same only with the promise of rain in the early morning. With Lianne La Havas, The Selecter and Toddla T Sound all set to play at Tramlines, it’s looking like another beautiful summery weekend in Sheffield.

Truck Festival takes place at Hill Farm, Oxford from the 19th to the 20th of July and is headlined this year by Spiritualized and The Horrors.

Friday will be a no holds barred summer party with not a cloud to be seen and high temperatures reaching a thermometer bursting (for England) 27°CSaturday will start out cloudy but it will clear by noon and temperatures will rise to 25°C.
